Cartier Gold and Diamond Swirl Brooch

This Cartier Paris gold and diamond brooch expresses the spirit of casual elegance and dynamic recovery that was key to the post-War 1950s experience. Composed of delicate rope-twist gold wirework, its sweeping upper edge and terminals are highlighted by over three carats of round brilliant-cut diamonds. Designed with a free hand, this lightweight and airy swirl is a graceful addition to the clean lines of a gown or jacket.
